Addi Rockets are just plain faster. Rockets have:
- sharp tips of the Turbo Lace needles to easily scoop up stitches
- the slick nickel-plated surface of the original Turbos so the stitches slide easily along the tips
- pliable blue cable
- US and metric sizes stamped on the cable
- lightweight hollow brass tips under the nickel plating
The 24" length is commonly used for knitting socks on two circular needles and for knitting children's sweaters in the round.
